Isaiah 11:10  At that time a root from Jesse will stand like a signal flag for the nations. Nations will look to him for guidance, and his residence will be majestic.

The Hebrews have been looking for their promised Messiah to come for generations.  Why did Jesus come when He did?  Rome defeated the Hebrews quite some time ago.  There were many season of civil wars and unrest.  Now all was quiet.  Travel was good without need of visas.  Roads were good.  Hebrews were allowed to practice their religion as long as they obeyed the Roman government and paid their taxes.  It was a period in history were the Messiah was free to travel without restraint.  Many countries and races passed through Jerusalem and the region.  God set history to be ready for His Son to come and show all mankind the way.  It was at a time when the Word made flesh in the person of Jesus could be taken through the known world.  Hearts were ready.  The right people were in place.  Hearts are still ready today.  Our question is are we willing to be the right people   to share God’s Word, Jesus, with others?
